Travel and History!
Updated: Oct 6
For quite some time Bobby and I have wanted to visit Son of Thurman in Delaware, Ohio. Reportedly one of the best burger joints in Ohio and possibly the entire U.S., we wanted to see if this restaurant actually lived up to its reputation. So this past weekend we decided to invite our daughter and her beau for a double date.
Son of Thurman is a fourth generation restaurant with a fun history. There is also some sort of tradition going on where people leave dollar bills taped to the walls. We haven't yet figured out what started the fad, but it was interesting to see where all they came from as many were signed. The food was quite tasty, the portions good, and the service friendly. We left satisfied, and now we don't have to wonder any more! And speaking of history, Barbara Mojica has a new addition to her Little Miss History series titled, Little Miss History Travels Independence Hall & The Museum of the American Revolution. This story is a wonderful way for children to learn about America's fight for independence in manageable portions as they join Little Miss History, the main character and narrator, on her journey. An interesting mix of actual photos and illustrations by her husband, Victor Mojica, adds an element of interest and depth to the story.
I read and reviewed an arc of this story which is coming out some time this month. But while you wait for its release, be sure to check out the many other great stories in this series!
I hope you enjoyed a brief glimpse into my week as well as my foray into the kidlit world. I also hope to see you here again next Monday.
Wishes for a week full of wonder!
